Our Personas Developers and Designers
The Solution Fuzzy Search Algorithm
For each message we iterate through and hash each word into a bucket by their first character. Then, we alphabetically compare our pre-defined topic names with their matching bucket. This reduces the time to process each message by not comparing every word to every trend. We did some initial runs of this algorithm to track average message length to find a threshold of character count. We discovered that we could ignore processing messages below 25 characters and lose few significant messages. In the future we could enhance this with Alchemy if they drop their ridiculous API rate limit
